ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday lodged a strong protest with Afghanistan over cross-border attack on a Pakistan army check post in Lower Dir area from across the border.

According to the statement issued by the ministry of foreign affairs, the Afghan Charge d’ Affaires was called to the Foreign Office and a strong protest was lodged over the cross-border attack on military post in Lower Dir area last night. At least seven terrorists were killed and 9 were injured as the attack was repulsed by the Pakistan military.

Pakistan urged the Afghan authorities, once again, to take effective steps to stop the use of Afghan territory for repeated cross-border fire and physical attacks by terrorists.

Pakistan would also take up the matter with the Afghan government at a higher level in the broader context of enhancing security along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

@Afghan Maihan and other Indian posters: How much does Modi pay you to comment on this website? We know Israeli government funds internet activists to dehumanize Muslims and Palestinians.

Indians keep denying Muslim Kashmiris, Afghans, and Pakistanis our national sovereignty and keep interfering in our affairs and abusing our religion Islam. Time is coming for justice, believe it. Kashmir, Afghanistan, and Pakistan will be free of foreign influence. Our fate is united together.

@sterry - "So by your logic, when will India get its comeuppance for over 60 years of terrorizing Kashmir and refusing to observe UN resolutions on the issue"

Actually its comeuppance time for Kashmiris, who have kicked out Kashmiri Pandits & Hinduism from the valley - the land of Kashyap rishi, that belonged to us..
